Q15. (If support rent regulation) Some have argued that the rent regulation laws should simply be renewed as is, others argue that the laws should be strengthened to provide additional protections for tenants. Do you think the rent regulation
laws should be extended as is, or should be extended and strengthened?

Q19. Another issue being debated in Albany is whether or not New York should legalize mixed martial arts, known by some as cage fighting or ultimate fighting. Supporters say mixed martial arts or MMA is already legal in many states and if
legal here in New York would generate fan interest, direct revenues and would be an engine of economic development. Opponents say MMA is dangerous, even barbaric and we should not allow such a violent sport to be practiced here in New
York. Do you think mixed martial arts should or should not be made legal in New York?
